Because today in the music world, the bands have little skill.
Here at UG, we respect bands with skill.
that's at least why I don't like them.

Selling out IMO.
Barry White is cooler than you

Is that a ukulele in your pants, or did you just rip ass to the tune of "Aloha Oi"?


I met Sonic Youth on June 30th, and Mars Volta on Oct 20th.

Avenged Sevenfold for trying to be GNR - Fall Out Boy and MCR for being a bunch of miserable moaning bastards....

I have to put it like this cos i used to be into those bands, then about two years ago saw the light, changed my hair and now listen to more uplifting stuff, cos its the best way to cure one's unhappiness, rather than worsening it

Some people don't like them because their music doesn't appeal to them, and some don't like them because it's 'cool' to do so.

I don't really like them, because their sound doesn't appeal to me being an electronic music and hip hop fan. But a lot of UG is into metal and don't really like pop-punk/hard rock.

Also, yeah it seems like it's "cool" to hate them for some reason. But you have your taste in music, and others have their own.

I think what pisses most people off (about the A7X thing) is that every once in a while an Avenged Sevenfold thread pops up in the metal forum - with some fella insisting that they are metal.
Personally, I don't like the band, I have no problem with fans of the band, but they just don't belong in the metal forum.
